A Prayer For Parents Who Let Their Kids Wear Shorts To School When It’s Cold Outside

Congregation of St. Panama Jackson the United Methodist Baptist Pentecostal AME Church of God in Christ Episcopal Primitive Missionary Baptist Down By The Riverside Holiness Church, please bow your heads:

Dear 8 pound, 6 ounce newborn infant Jesus, don’t even know a word yet, just a little infant and so cuddly, but still omnipotent, I come to you in consternation today, Lord. Precious Lord, take my hand. For I may not get there with you, but mine eyes have seen both the glory and several other things that make me wonder, dear Father, who, what, when, where, or why, oh why, do some parents allow their children to come outside the house, oh Lord, in shorts, when it’s a solid 42 degrees outside in the morning.

I need answers, Father. Sway doesn’t have them, so Father, I, Father I stretch my hands to you in inquiry because, like Joe, I wanna know, Lord. In case you weren’t aware, your holiness, I live in Washington, DC, the city, Father, not the area that some of your fallen angels and misguided souls refer to as the DMV. I’m not sure why anybody would want to refer to a metropolitan area with the same initials as the location of so much dysfunction and displeasure, but it is not my job to understand the misdeeds of your aints, Father, for I live in the truth, the light, and the way. LL Cool J said that it’s something like a phenomenon, and while that has nothing to do with anything, Jesus, it was on my heart to share and my testimony matters, Father. All testimony matters according to your word.

And speaking of words, can you please send a few words down to the homes of the largely unhued inhabitants of the Earth you created who see fit to allow their children to test the limits of their immune systems against shingles, colds, the flu, and pneumonia. And while you’re sending down that word, Precious Lord, can you please explain to me why we need a “p” in front of pneumonia anyway? And while you’re looking into that one, can we have your angel Gabriel do a little research into the silent “k” as well? It’s always bothered me, Lord.

But seriously, Lord, we have these little cold children standing at bus stops, exhibiting precursors to horrible decision making in the future enabled by parents who either don’t know, don’t show, or just don’t care that their children are risking the health of entire communities because there are parents who need a healing, Father. I look at these kids and I want to yell at them and tell them to go and put some clothes on because its 47 degrees outside and ain’t nobody got time for their that or their germs to be permeating through your holy kingdom of Heaven here on Earth.

Lord, some of these folks need a little more Jesus in their homes, granting them the serenity to accept the things that they cannot change, but gifting them with the light to have their children change into some pants, socks, and closed toe shoes when the temperature dips below 60 degrees, Father. Okay, maybe 55 for your European creations as I realize that while Blood is thicker than water, and Like Water For Chocolate is a book, perhaps they may be able to maintain warmth in lower temperatures. I’ve watched Alaskan Bush People on Discovery and have been dumbfounded at the small amount of clothing those folks wear – in Alaska – when it’s really cold outside on something called a “homestead.” I prefer my homeowner’s association fee, heavenly Lord, and I promise to try to pay that thing on time from here on out…

…starting next month.

But Lord, I just need you to come bless the saints and aints and give the spirit of warmth to those poor children that I see outside in the dead of winter, in like February, Father God, who still have on sandals, shivering in their Under Armour sweatshirts, while I send my child to school wrapped up in the finest wool garments made of your earthly blessings because I believe the children are the future but it won’t be no children, Father God, if they’re all dead because they have pneumonia because they’re freezing on the way to school in the morning wearing brand new Steph Curry’s but no socks and a hoodie in 30 degree temperatures. Jesus be a BLANKET on these streets near the fences around the neighborhoods.

Lord, I humbly ask that you save these people from themselves and send all of the Champion hoodies and sweatpants that your heart desires, and the warmest of wool socks, of which Hanes makes a wonderful product, Lord. Please supplicate those households with knowing and attention as they watch their children walk out of the door and imbue with the wisdom to say, “hey, put on some pants”. Also, Lord, thank you for the confidence to use supplicate wrong in the prior sentence. You are a knowing and honest savior, and you be knowing that I know that you know what I’m trying to say so you just let me milli rock on any block, Father.

These blessings for heat and health and parents who pay attention to their kids when its cold outside, I ask for in your holy name, Father, as I know the footprints in the sand aren’t mine, but yours. Because me and you, your mama and your cousin too, know the ledge, and as the good book sayeth in John, chapter 15, verse 2, you will cut off every branch that doesn’t bear fruit. Send some warm fruit please, Father God.

Amen.

  • I was totally this kid with Birkenstocks in cold ayus Detroit…lmao

    My daddy hated it..

    • Cleojonz

      I remember leaving basketball practice and not wanting to put clothes on again. I was that kid with a coat and shorts on lol.

      My husband wore shorts all last winter. It’s too daggone hot on the pool deck to be in full pants.

    • Let me add..I also hate shoes sooooo that’s the closest thing to barefeet

    • Cheech

      My cousin grew up in SC, married a Floridian who had never left his native state (editor of a scuba magazine), then took him to Connecticut for grad school.

      I visited them that September. Knowing that student money is tight, I gently suggested that they budget for some winter boots. His jaw dropped and he stared me in the eye. “You’re kidding me. You gotta have special SHOES to live here?”

      • Lmao…Floridians get shafted… it’s apparent when they drive in the rain.

        • Bah Debo

          As much as it rained in Florida when I was growing up…

          I will officially request the ‘Florida native’ status be revoked from any poor child who cannot drive in the rain. I need names, driver license numbers, and plate numbers because that cannot stand.

          • Every person in Florida..lol

          • JustMe81

            As a DC transplant to south Florida, I’m more concerned with the lack of turn signal usage here. Lack as in, none at all, like ever, not even on days that end in “y”. I need a native Floridian to explain this nonsense lol.

            • Cheech

              I thought those were the transplanted NYers and NJsians. “It’s nonyaf’inbusiness where I’m goin.”

              • JustMe81

                At first I thought it was just the snowbirds, but then I noticed literally no one uses turn signals, not even cops. Can’t be that many non-natives driving around down here. I get why insurance is so high.

                • Cheech

                  Off topic, the only-in-Florida sight that had me shaking my head the hardest was the golf course where they didn’t have golf carts, they just let you drive your car on the cart path. Guy leaving the driver door of his Buick Riviera open, engine running, while he tees off next to it. I am not kidding.

            • Bah Debo

              Most people in South Florida are transplants… And the rest are old…

          • Gibbous

            Starting in June in Gainesville, it would thunder and lightening every day for about 20 – 40 minutes. As the summer wore on, it would rain a little later every day until September the rain came at 4:00pm.

            It was like siesta. Everyone would take a break and then go back outside when it was over. No biggie.

            • Bah Debo

              Spent the better part of 7 years loving Gainesville…

      • Sigma_Since 93

        This reminds me of all the Florida boys on the football team that would get shook when we would play schools in the Virginia mountains in late November. They would try to find every stitch of clothing they could and then couldn’t move on the field.

        • Lmao

        • RaeRae

          Ha! My husband is from Dallas and played for the University of Minnesota. He said the winters were so brutal and disrespectful.

      • Cleojonz

        “You gotta have special SHOES to live here?”

        DYING!!!

      • miss t-lee

        LOL
        This reminds me of one of my co-workers telling how they used to do winters in Minnesota and North Dakota. Talking bout snow tires, heater blocks and such.
        Whole time I’m like…

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8e71d40954cf586789bb3569b3bcadeeb7c7410f2d1c4c23be59c6ecca0ce88d.gif

      • Blueberry01

        LOL! And special coats…

    • Sigma_Since 93

      I was totally this kid with Birkenstocks”

      A) you mean Jesus sandals

      B) You’re bougie cause hood kids only get those prison style flip flops

      • I went to Birmingham Marian… all my black peeps there called them Birkenstocks as soon as my ayus got back to the D… Jesus sandals it was… that just made me holler.

        When they found out the price, they were done…. but me and my sister were also the first ones with Gucci gym shoes.. owwwwww.

        • Brother Mouzone

          Cooley grad here…my poor school is closed now. Smh.

          • Redford was my neighborhood school and they are closed too.. Just Henry Ford is left .

        • Nik White

          Marian? Umm hmm she bougie said the Cass (in the HOOD) Tech grad.

          • Girl…. my parents paid for a bomb ayus education but I’m a D girl to my core…lmao

            I NEVER not repped my origin.. ?

    • kimest3e

      Kids in shorts in the winter all over the Metro Detroit area. Shorts and Hoodies. My boys haven’t worn the shorts but the hoodies? They own coats they don’t wear, and it ain’t worth the fight.

      • Nik White

        I blame white people (sorry Cheech and LMNOP). Do your boys have North Face hoodies?

        • kimest3e

          No. Most of their hoodies are Nike and Sports teams. Their friends that are white, wear the shorts and the hoodies. You can only tell who is who from the back, because they all have their hoods up but the white boys got on shorts. They didn’t start this mess till high school, when there social circle got larger. Then again a black family living four generations in the suburbs can also be the problem. LOL

  • It’s not cold until it’s below 40 degrees.

    • panamajackson

      It’s not freezing until then. It’s cold at 42 degrees.

      • Not in Michigan. =)

      • Cleojonz

        You and your thin blood. Cold is not 42 degrees lol. I am refusing to wear a coat yet. It’s gotta drop to at least 30 for that.

        • miss t-lee

          Exactly. I’ll layer up until I absolutely have to put on a coat and gloves.

          • Cleojonz

            Yup I’ll be in a vest with sweatshirts underneath until it really gets to be coat weather.

            • miss t-lee

              thin shirt, sweater, cute scarf. Done!

        • panamajackson

          Thin blood deez.

          • Cheech

            *snicker*

          • Cleojonz

            I should probably be offended, but this really just made me cackle.

      • You sound like these Floridians…lol

        Yesterday, I saw kids at the bus stop with ear muffs and Northgate jackets.. it was 60.

        #teamtoomurch https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dd34ed2d9985b27c2321856705b40ebe039f576746744786078ac6b9f3e11879.jpg

        • miss t-lee

          You can always tell the transplants here. The minute it dips below 60 they break out the furs like they’re gonna be able to wear them longer than 5 minutes…lol

          • I was baffled af…like your parents must be from the Sahara.

            • miss t-lee

              Girl…

          • Cleojonz

            This is all the poor Pakistani and Indian people that move to my town. You can tell when they just got to the States because it will be 60 degrees and they will have on a full down coat and scarf wrapped around face and neck. Yet they’ll still have their sandals on.

            • miss t-lee

              My neighbor does the same. She’s Korean, she wears her flip flops with socks and keeps on trucking.

        • Scorpiogoddess??

          Ummm, I’m dressed like I’m in the North Pole right nah, nah.

        • RewindingtonMaximus

          Point me in their direction.

          I need to kick people

        • blueevey

          Lol. That’s what I’d do.

          But then again, southern California.

        • Brown Rose

          Sorry ma’am that would be, but wrapped up tight in my car with the heater on full blast.

    • miss t-lee

      Tell em. I don’t even turn on my heat until it’s at least 30.

      • Val
        • miss t-lee

          I’ve never been in a blizzard. I woudln’t know that either.
          Ice storms at best.

          • I’ve seen 4.5 feet of snow…let that marinate..

            • miss t-lee

              Most I’ve ever seen was about a foot. I was 6. Last time it really, really snowed here.

              • I was in CT during the Superstorm and the Blizzard… I’m from Michigan and had NEVER seen that much snow.

                • Cleojonz

                  We were done with winter both those times. I still don’t want the non winter we had last year though. I was walking around Times Square in a short sleeve shirt on Christmas Eve.

                  • I NEED snow on Xmas… but Florida. ?

                    • miss t-lee

                      Never seen snow on xmas. Except for the movies…lol

                    • Not only did I just laugh, I also shook my head.

                    • miss t-lee

                      I’m so sincere, Poppa…lol

                    • A friend clowned me by sending a video of them sitting at the beach with drinks the other day.
                      It was 40 ° here that night.

                    • miss t-lee

                      You was so sad, eh?

                    • You’ve never been in a blizzard, and I cant imagine a beach in winter, lol

                    • miss t-lee

                      It’s totally an alternate reality for both of us.

                    • Cheech

                      In 86 there was snow on the cactus in Tucson, coming out of midnight service Christmas Eve. I’ve seen few things so beautiful.

                    • *mind blown* You HAVE to experience it at least ONCE!!

                    • miss t-lee

                      Nah, I really don’t…lol I’m soooo good.

                    • Woooooooow… but….

                    • miss t-lee

                      I’ll just sing the Christmas carols about snow and pretend.

                    • MsSula

                      There was that 1 time it snowed in Houston on Christmas Eve… and then 3 hours later it was gone.

                      But I actually like hot and humid weather. I don’t do cold like AT ALL. Miss me with that. Gimme warmth.

                    • Nik White

                      I don’t have to have it on Christmas. One of my goals is to spend it on the beach somewhere.

                  • RewindingtonMaximus

                    Yea warm winters creep me out because I feel like we are going to pay for it so royally soon enough

                    • Cleojonz

                      This winter is bound to be a b*tch!

                • miss t-lee

                  Anything called a Superstorm is a no…lol

              • RewindingtonMaximus

                That’s amazing, that it even gets to snow in Texas.

                • miss t-lee

                  Parts of Texas get snow every year.
                  I don’t live in those parts.

            • Brother Mouzone

              And STILL have to go to school..in Michigan.

              • Not now back in the day… yeah.. i remember 18 inches of snow and Carmen Harlan said, “Make sure you wear your boots!”

                SON!!!!

                • Nik White

                  I feel old saying it, but these kids are soft.

          • “Blizzard” of 93 was the closest thing I’ve seen in Atlanta (Snowpacalypse didn’t count, that was ice). We got maybe 10 inches. Shut. The City. DOWN.

            • Cheech

              I was there in Dec. 90 (I think) when we got 12″ overnight. I saw a cop do a smooth spinning 360 at about 30 mph on Jimmy Carter Boulevard. Straightened it out and kept on driving. (It was a Saturday morning so not much traffic. I was on my way to work.)

            • RewindingtonMaximus

              That’s not much. DC gets a snowflake and the whole city goes dark for 3 days straight.

              • Cheech

                So effing true.

              • KNeale

                Yeah I’m from Hampton Roads VA. We always had snow in the winter. But like, a light snow maybe 2 or 3 days of the winter. Growing up in 90s we had very respectable very defined seasons. That has changed and weather has gotten wacky (like all places, but I’m just saying VA used to be perfect). And getting more than a light dusting of snow is like the apocalypse. Everything shuts down. They are completely unprepared.

                • Gibbous

                  True in NC too. My sister lives in Maine and only blinked when I told her the state shut down for 4 days over 4 inches of snow. Meanwhile They’re all building the SnowFridge. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e725c9e12d4d876ed6860bff36a5ef18ff794394bae250709793a61b087dfd75.jpg

                  • Cheech

                    This is awesome.

                • Nik White

                  Yeah I remember going to sleep after church and seeing a few flurries.The campus was shut down and only “essential” personnel were required to report. The snow had melted by the time I finished my nap.

              • Yahmo Bethere

                LOL stop it Chitownian!

                • RewindingtonMaximus

                  You know I’m telling the truth!

            • Three inches shuts ATL down.

              • Yahmo Bethere

                Ice =/= snow.

            • miss t-lee

              This is the aforementioned storm from when I was 6.
              I grew up in a neighboring town, this is most snow I’ve ever seen in person.
              http://www.mystatesman.com/news/lifestyles/austinites-remember-big-snowstorm-30-years-later/njh2L/

            • Smh

          • Come get some of this Philly foolishness. This is the time we had 30 inch drifts…
            Good times.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ac99f0886763132ad4abd26fefe9deb4eb4818c73faeb68c28ef21c98a45810f.jpg

            • miss t-lee

              That’s all you homie.
              I like my flip flops on Xmas.

          • If the snow total is too long for your average woman or gay dude to um…handle, then you’re in trouble. LOL

            • miss t-lee

              Good rule of thumb Todd. ‘Preciate cha…lol

      • Conrad Bess

        Americans and your blasted Fahrenheit. I remember as a kid seeing the weather on the US news and asking mom/pops why are we here if it’s 32 in Buffalo? How are people not dying in the streets of Phoenix cuz it’s 112?

        Celsius people. Come join civilisation.

      • Brown Rose

        What? What? that is insane. Ya’ll must be insulated like polar bears.

        • miss t-lee

          Bwahahha. I do have a lot of insulation…lol

    • Cheech

      It’s not chilly until it’s below 40. Fixed that for you.

      Cold is sub-freezing.

      • If someone were to swim in 40 degree water there’s a good chance they wouldn’t last long at all.
        “Cold” as defined in the dictionary doesn’t have anything to do with sub-freezing. All cold means is that the temperature is uncomfortably low for people.

        • Cheech

          Like I said.

      • Me

        Southerner turned Northerner here… It’s cold under 75. And anything under 60 is freezing. Thassit! Scru water’s old fickle temperature settings.

    • There’s the lie.

    • Sigma_Since 93

      That’s a lie. It was a smooth 50 degrees yesterday but that wind was cuttin folks down yesterday.

      • 50 degrees is nice. I wouldn’t have a coat at 50 degrees or turn the heat on in the house.

        • Sigma_Since 93

          “50 degrees is nice.”

          In January, February, and March

          • Or in September, October and November. I like having some time where I don’t have to pay the utility company for heat or AC.

            • Sigma_Since 93

              If Indian Summer didn’t exist, I’d agree. I hate 79 degrees on Monday and 51 on Tuesday with high winds. I love to get my layering on but come on son!

          • mr. steal your costco samples

            got dang winter was fire in WNY last year — like 60 on Xmas

            • Sigma_Since 93

              When I lived in the South, Christmas was a mind fcuk. How you gonna play Nat King Cole’s Chestnuts roasting on an open fire when I’m roasting on this golf course???

      • Cleojonz

        50 degrees is comfortable. Just cool enough to put on a cute fall jacket or cardigan.

    • -h.h.h.-
    • KNeale

      Lol. I just moved from Chicago to New Orleans (not a native of neither). In Chicago they used to say, don’t start wearing your real coat until late December/January because you don’t want to get used to wearing a coat only to have the temperature drop again and the coat becomes ineffective. Now in New Orleans they say, don’t start acting like its summer until late July/August because if you start tripping and blasting the air in May/June you will not be able to adjust to July/August. You guys…is there any science behind this whatsoever!!! Because nothing works at all. Nothing works ever! I hate extreme temperatures in general! Phuc climate change!

      • Janelle S

        Nothing will work. You will spend half your year complaining about the weather in either place.

    • Brother Mouzone

      We used to call 40s, “good football weather”, growing up in Michigan.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    If my mother still had it her way I would of been wearing tights with my dresses/skirts in September. :(

    • What is it with older black women hating bare legs?

      • miss t-lee

        As my grandmother says, “You’re half dressed.”

      • Scorpiogoddess??

        I love bare legs, especially when they shaved and lotioned well. I like some fine looking legs.

  • miss t-lee

    I’m wearing shorts today. We can do that 10 months out of the year here. So, this life is lost on me.

    • We have finally gotten to the point where I can turn off my air… I’m LOVING IT.

      • miss t-lee

        We haven’t. It’s 80 today.

        • Scorpiogoddess??

          Wait. What?!?!?

          • miss t-lee

            Yup. :)

        • Cleojonz

          I would hate this. But actually my air is still on at night right now because the DH runs hot. I’m going to bed in sweats.

          • miss t-lee

            It’s not bad. Much better than the 100s.

        • Jennifer

          *sigh* I miss me some autumn in Texas. Jackets and socks are overrated.

          • miss t-lee

            I only wear socks when I go on my walks. Otherwise sandals 24/7

            • Cheech

              For Kas those go together.

            • Jennifer

              You’re living the dream!

              • miss t-lee

                It’s lovely!

          • miss t-lee

            So sorry.

            Sandals and shorts here, my friend.

    • Scorpiogoddess??

      What kind of shorts doe? I like booray shorts.

      • Booray?

        • Scorpiogoddess??

          Yeah babes, like booooooo Tay.

      • miss t-lee

        Well, I’m at work so bermudas…lol

        • Scorpiogoddess??

          Wow. Haven’t heard that word in years. Bermudas!

          • miss t-lee

            I mean, what else do you call knee length shorts.

            • Scorpiogoddess??

              Giiiirl me no know but it’s been a minute since I heard that word in use

              • miss t-lee

                LMAO

  • I love the type of weather where I can wear my Pumas, some cargo shorts, a hoodie, and just grill all day with a six pack or some whiskey by my side.

    • Ain’t it the best?

      • It needs an official name because it’s not quite fall but not quite winter.

    • Cheech

      I thought the grilling shirs were unlaced timbs?

      I tried this btw. Most comfortable. Shoes. Ever.

      • It all depends on what’s close by at the moment.

    • RewindingtonMaximus

      Why does anyone wear shorts with hoodies?

      I need help with this. Why is the top part covered but the bottom half not covered?

      • Cheech

        Mobility.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        is this your outfit for the day or are you going to the gym?

      • My legs just don’t get as cold as my torso.

        • Scorpiogoddess??

          I hope they ain’t stickies.

          • I can squat 350lbs+, so no stick legs here.

      • Cleojonz

        This is my brother too. Couple years ago he came to visit and we went ice skating and I was like I know you’re not wearing shorts for that. He absolutely did. In a pinch he will concede to runners tights underneath. He wears a uniform most of the time for work, he has no use for real clothes.

      • Buster Cannon

        I do this all the time when I head to the gym in the morning. Chilly outside? Just throw a hoodie on over my workout clothes and I’m good to go.

      • KNeale

        My arns get cold much easier than my legs.

      • Gibbous

        What’s the difference between shorts and a skirt with a jacket? Women wear skirts ALL WINTER LONG!!!

      • BrownBearBear

        Gotta keep that core covered. I live in SF. Hoodies are the official uniform. Don’t be caught outside when that fog rolls in. We live and die by layers.

        • RewindingtonMaximus

          I’m good with the hoodie. By why the shorts?

          How are the legs not cold?

  • But what’s if it’s 43 at 7AM and 88 at 3PM. This is Atlanta.

    • Hugh Akston

      Do you really have to post this? Really? Us New Englanders don’t like thee tew much lol need to get out of this freezing heII

      • Cleojonz

        But New England weather is like this too this time of year. Last week we had cold a** mornings and darn near 80 by the afternoon. This is why layering is key. You wear a coat out the gate you end up roasting by the afternoon.

        • Hugh Akston

          Oh don’t get me wrong there is the mood swing weather but once winter hits I just start thinking about the day I move out of this place

          2015 was brutal

          • Blueberry01

            Was that the 100+ inches of snow season?

            • Hugh Akston

              Yep I really thought I was going to die

              Because that was my first winter in mass and I just moved back from living in w Africa and the Caribbean for a few years

              • Blueberry01

                Man! I would have read the eulogy, in the honor.

                The NE winters are NO joke!!! Like, I stay rebuking Satan as I walk to the train in the wintertime.

                It’s so unfair.

                • Hugh Akston

                  Just went outside for break and it’s freaking snowing

                  Lawd help me move out of this place

            • Hugh Akston

              Yep don’t know how many work days I missed but it was a few because they couldn’t clean the parking lot fast enough

              • Blueberry01

                Yo, I don’t know how y’all dealt with that. I got cabin fever when I couldn’t leave the house for three days due to a blizzard.

                I’d be surprised to hear about the birth rates during that time. LOL!

      • -h.h.h.-

        Do you really have to post this?

        it’s ok, they have the Falcons.
        Karma, is not without a sense of humour

        • Touche…. :-( Dirty Birds choke in the cold.

          • NomadaNare

            *Searches for seasons where dirty birds dont choke*

            *Finds none*

            • Other_guy13

              Excuse you!!!

              • NomadaNare

                *scans statement for lies*

                *finds none*

                • Other_guy13

                  We will fight in the shade

          • Other_guy13

            Y’all tryna start a fight?

        • Lea Thrace

          I…

          I dont have a retort for this. ugh

        • Other_guy13

          You just made my list

        • Blueberry01

          LOL! Triple H, you come out of nowhere slaying…

    • Karine1976

      That our mid fall and early spring conundrum up here but you need life experience to know which way to go. Even then I get bitten in the azz because sometimes even though it says 88°, it won’t feel nowhere near like it.

    • Other_guy13

      This is my life….oh I forgot…yours too

  • Cheech

    Laughed all the way through this. My son is the one at the bus stop in shorts, sneaks, and a light hoodie, saying, cold? What cold?

    I dare you to try to get pants or a real jacket on him. (Btw it was a pleasant, brisk walk in this morning in shirtsleeves. Made me think I look forward to jacket weather in November.)

  • Those 2520 cubs grow into 2520 adults that wear shorts and flip-flops ALL. DAMB. YEAR. There’s like 6 of them in my office, and I’m constantly like #dafuq when chilli season comes round…. and they are constantly coughing, wheezing, and damb near dying from…. something….

    Bonus points for the Outkast reference.
    Innanet king for the day (week?) for this heartfelt prayer.

    • RewindingtonMaximus

      I don’t even ask why anymore.

      I just spray them with Lyseol when they aren’t looking.

  • HAHA!!!

  • Mika

    I just hate cold weather so much. Bless all of you who live in places that require layers of clothing.

    • NonyaB?

      Cold weather IS the devil.

    • MsSula

      Cold weather is so unnecessary. Ugh. I just can’t.
